I demoed these skis a whole day last week and I loved the overall experience on them.
It was a day or two after a big powder day, and I encountered almost all snow conditions that day.
I am 5'5" 105 lbs. I skied on the 169cm.
These skis are super stable, fast, and confidence inspiring. Great for skiing wide open bowls, canyons, and stuff above the treeline. A little hard to turn really fast in tight trees, but I'm not that into skiing in the woods anyway.
My rating
Powder-10/10
Stratugi windblown weirdness- 10/10
Groomers 10/10
Steeps 10/10
Tight technical terrain- 7/10
chopped up crud- 10/10
cliffs,drop offs, cornices- 10/10
moguls-8/10
parks-8/10

I got these for Christmas. They are cool looking, they have nice vents to let your gogs dry out, and match your Dakine backpack. They are a little tight fit for big Oakley spherical goggles + an extra lens but if you put them in the right way they fit PERFECTLY. They were definitely meant for more of a Smith Stance or Dragon DX goggle.

these are the perfect goggles
enough said.
Only one thing wrong with them- the lens is a little hard to put back in but I think i'll get the hang of it, and besides, if that bothers you so much, buy the oakley airbrakes, which is one step up from the splices. I would recommend getting two lenses and the facemask that fits into the goggle and you will have the sweetest goggle setup ever.

These goggles have lasted me for over three years before they started to get scratched up pretty bad last spring when we were skiing a lot. I finally pulled the plug and bought a pair of Oakley splice recently. They were very flexible and the Vermillion gun is actually kinda iridium-ish(cool reflection) on bright days. The V gun lens is not the best for low light but I did use it on 5+ blizzard days. The goggle is very flexible, light, and comfy. They do fog up though. Especially when climbing around retrieving your gear after that crash landing. Overall a good goggle. but I would recommend buying a low light lens too.

Do the lenses ever break off or get knocked out of the frames? they seem that there's not much holding them on. I seem to be good at face planting when going off cornices and don't want to lose a lens in the snow. i am either going to buy the stance or the io and cant decide. i like the style of the io but i am pretty hard on my gear and want something that will not get scratched and broken when i crash
